March 14, 2010Won’t You Be Anthea’s Neighbor – Mid-Century Time Capsule in Canada
I came across your site from some linkyness or another a while ago. Seeing your appreciation of mid century homes, I thought I’d share what I came across while I was trolling for houses in my city. A real find! Unfortunately it is sold but all the pics work. I squealed out loud at the kitchen, and totally want all of the bathrooms (4). But, I’m totally digging what I call the “Kubrick Lounge-den-Thang” on the main floor. The price might seem a little steep, but this is in a very desirable post-war era suburb, and we have real weird buyers and sellers market here at the moment. Anywho, enough of jibber- jabbin’, on with the show.
I agree! Let’s show this baby! Here is the upper level.
This house is in the province of Newfoundland, and is totally amazing. Check out the listing here for more information.
It is a duplex, built in 1964 and has had only one owner. There is over 4,000 square feet of space in this awesome house. And all of it vintage-tastic.
Look! Look at the tile! Look!
Love that table! And check out the pattern in the carpet…
Not sure what the point of this is (A room inside a room?) but I think I like it.
Oh yeah. I totally like it.
I actually think I am going to cry a little over this. Sniff. I love pink. And is that tile on the ceiling?
Check this out.
Yup. That would be a fold up scale in the pink bathroom wall. Awesome.
A different bathroom, another fold up scale and an amazing floor.
Completely tiled! And check out the swan shower door.
Ok, whew. Stopped breathing there for a second. This has to be one of my most favorite bathrooms ever. And the ceilings ARE tiled!!!
I am pretty sure two of those bathrooms are from the lower level. So let’s check out the rest of the house.
Cute. Love the built-ins!
Awww..this one doesn’t have colored appliances. But still cool.
A lot less natural light downstairs, don’t you think?
Holy crap, I love this room. Check out that sofa!
Whew, that is quite the post. Thanks, Anthea! And if anyone else has a great time capsule in their area, email it to me so we can all share it!
